She claimed Paul had showed up to ‘about three of my community events per week’ and he was ‘absolutely obsessed’ with her

Gareth Pursehouse has kept his sibling’s name and other family members’ secrets from the media.

Despite a previous high-profile relationship, little information is available on Pursehouse’s personal life because he often stayed out of the spotlight. This makes it hard to tell more about his personal life and educational background.

Gareth Pursehouse has earned a pretty huge sum of money from his career. According to the sources, his estimated net worth is around $2 million.

Who was Amie Harwick?

Amie Nicole Harwick was a writer and marriage and family therapist who was born on May 20, 1981, in Sellersville, Pennsylvania.

She studied psychology at California Polytechnic University and also worked as a Playboy model.

Harwick was arguably best known for her career in Hollywood and had appeared in the 2015 documentary Addicted to Sexting.

In 2016, she appeared on the reality TV show Braxton Family Values featuring singer Toni Braxton.

As a writer, she is arguably best known for publishing the 2014 book The New Sex Bible for Women, which is described on Amazon as “an all-encompassing and fully comprehensive guide for women covering everything from masturbation, oral sex, self-esteem and self-care, sex positions, safety and concerns, and sex aides.”

Outside of her career, she was known as the ex-fiancé of The Price Is Right host, Drew Carey.

The pair had begun dating in 2017 and got engaged in early 2018 but called it quits less than a year later.

Pursehouse is scheduled to be sentenced on December 6 and is facing life in prison without the possibility of parole.

What did Gareth Pursehouse do to Amie Harwick?

Amie Harwick was found unresponsive on February 15, 2020.

On the night of February 15, 2020, police responded after neighbors reported hearing screams and found Harwick under a balcony.

She died of blunt-force trauma to the head and had been strangled, it was later revealed.

Pursehouse and Harwick dated but broke up in 2012, according to her friends who testified.

During the time they were a couple and had their fall-out, Harwick accused him of physical abuse, according to court documents.

She was able to avoid him for eight years – but shortly before Harwick’s death, Pursehouse obtained her phone number and was stalking her.

The two ran into each other just two weeks before her death at an adult film industry gala.

Harwick’s best friend of nearly a decade, Robert Coshland, told The U.S. Sun that Pursehouse was “yelling and screaming and crying in public.”

“Falling on the ground and in the fetal position and saying she ruined his life.

“He was unhinged, and [Harwick] was really scared.”

Just like his father, MailyOnline reports Harwick got two protective orders against Pursehouse in 2011 after ending their relationship, but one had expired.

She had also expressed via text message that she was fearful of what Pursehouse might do, according to testimony from her friends.

Pursehouse was arrested and charged in 2020 with murder and burglary. He was released on a $2million bond and re-arrested on a no-bail warrant.

Where is Gareth Pursehouse now?

Pursehouse was accused of breaking into her house and waiting for her to get home before he strangled her to death as police said he threw Harwick’s body off of a balcony after strangling her.

Ring doorbell camera footage shown in court revealed Pursehouse tampering with the cameras after the murder.

Pursehouse was found guilty of first-degree murder and first-degree burglary. 

In addition, Pursehouse was found to have lied in wait to murder Harwick.

In a shock twist, the verdict was reached without Pursehouse’s defense presenting their case.

A verdict was reached after just seven hours of deliberation over the last two days.

Pursehouse is scheduled to be sentenced on December 6 and is facing life in prison without the possibility of parole.
